    build and clean

    Could anybody tell me whether the expression "build and clean" is an idiomatic expression or has direct meaning.

    I don't recognize it as an idiom.

    Write the sentence showing how it is used.

    The sentence is:
    "When we came, the quarter was completely destroyed,and now everything is built and clean."

    It's not an idiom - just bad phrasing. It means what it says: Before, things were destroyed and a mess. Now they're rebuilt and cleaned up.
